HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c70W
35. Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from the Cheadle-Wilmslow area on the question of the need for a hospital to be provided; when the representations were first made; and what plans he has for meeting the increased requirement for such facilities.

Mr. Alison

Nine bodies and individuals, including my hon. Friend, have made representations to my right hon. Friend on the subject generally since he announced his decision in March 1971 that a district general hospital should not be built at Wilmslow Road, Cheadle. No final decision has yet been made about future hospital provision for the area.
